PENN FUTURE and CCI
Sustainable Community Fellow
June started with a bang as we led up to the World Environment Day Celebration. We began with an all-day tabling opportunity at the World Environment Day Water Matters Conference. This was a excellent opportunity to engage new constituents and Community Partners.
The Black and Gold City Goes Green had launched a Water Savers Competition amongst its Community Partners starting April 1st. This culminated in a celebration and awards ceremony on June 5th at the Carnegie Science Center. I assisted in the coordination and devised the programming for this event.
Since the theme for World Environment Day was “Water Matters” we partnered with the Conservation Consultants Inc. to provide door prizes of “Water Saving Kits”. It was a tremendous opportunity to introduce new constituents to the campaign.
June represented a multitude of outreach opportunities including a program at the Carnegie Library in Oakland. Continuing with the theme of water related actions I devised a program that linked water to carbon footprint. It was not particularly well attended but that gave us the opportunity to have a free from discourse on excessive water use and how that relates to carbon footprint. The program was recommended to other libraries.

The CCI center ran into some facility issues involving the roof in June. Coordinating some logistics became my primary responsibility. These items included attempting to remove about 3 tons of items and soil from said roof.
CCI also conducted a teacher’s training workshop at the facility. I coordinated a neighborhood tour for this event that was well received by these educators.
Conducted several building tours involving at least 100 individuals.
